Chicago’s Young Leadership Division sent 34 young professionals to participate in JFNA’s National Young Leadership Trip to Israel from June 30-July 7, 2014 along with 170 young leaders from across North America. The group saw Israeli cultural and spiritual highlights, spent time in Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, and the Negev Desert. They also experienced firsthand how JUF’s funding impacts incredible organizations across Israel.
